"I've been there, son. I've been there every step of your life. I was there when you were born, I carried you home, I fed you, clothed you, taught you how to walk, taught you how to talk, read to you, bathed you, raised you, put you in a good school, I made you! I'm your father, and that's all there is to it."
~ Kessler McGrath

Weaknesses:

  • Telepathy- Kessler can sucumb to any form of psychic attacks. Such as when Bolt touched his head and affected his brain's electrical signals, making him see hallucinations.
  • Power Overload- Kessler can sucumb to own power if absorbs too much kinetic energy.
  • Arrogance- Kessler McGrath, like many other genius supervillians, can fall under the weight of his own success. Because Kessler is a smart, charismatic individual, he boasts about himself too much, and underestimates many of his enemies
  • Energy Absorption- Kessler's powers absorb kinetic energy. So when faced with an enemy that absorbs virtually all types of energy, Kessler's powers are rendered useless.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Kinetic Energy Manipulation- Kessler McGrath has the ability to manipulate kinetic energy, the energy created by any form of movement. Using this power, Kessler is able to transfer kinetic energy from one object to another, thus strengthening his attacks, or tearing holes in walls with a simple touch. His powers include:

Hyperkinetic Extertion- Kessler can exert enormous amounts of kinetic energy and force, allowing him to perform many techniques such as:

  • Molecular Acceleration- Kessler can take the potential energy stored in an object and convert it to kinetic energy thus charging that item with explosive results.
  • Motor-Skill Manipulation via Touch- Kessler can mentally control the motor functions of others against their will by touching their heads.
  • Kinetic Energy Absorption- Kessler can absorb kinetic energy and use it in various ways, such as augmenting his strength and regenerating his health.
  • Kinetic Energy Emission- Kessler can relase a variety of ranged energy attacks of various shapes and intensities.
  • Combustion Inducment- Kessler can incite atomic structures within objects, causing them to combust or explode. For some odd reason, Kessler cannot use this powers on living beings.
  • Freezing- Kessler has ability to reduce the kinetic energy of atoms thereby lowering temerature. He is capable of generating and sending forth various freezing effects.
  • Kinetic Energy Combat- Kessler is capable of kinetic energy through different parts of his body in order to enhance the strength of his attacks.
  • Superhuman Strength- Kessler is superhumanly stronger than a normal human. He is able to lift up to 200 tons with little effort. He can pick up and throw a fully grown human across a room with great speed and force.
  • Superhuman Speed- Kessler can use his kinetic energy to accelerate his movements. He can move up to supersonic speeds of approx. 500mph. To the human eye, it looks like he teleported.
  • Superhuman Endurance- Kessler can continue to operate and live without supplies, resources, or other items required for a normal, average human being to survive for an extended or almost infinite amoute of time.
  • Superhuman Durability- Kessler can sustain numerous blows of internal or external assaults before sccumbing to the effects.
  • Superhuman Reflexes- Kessler's relflexes have been drastically enhanced. He can dodge bullets, catch flies in mid-air, dodge and manuver around complex attacks, catch falling objects, block detriments, and react instantanously to what others take more time to react.
  • Jet Propulsion- Kessler can forcibly propel himself through the air at supersonic speeds over vast distances.

Scientific Genius-Level Intellect- Kessler McGrath is a very intelligent individual. When he was just 17 years old, he was already considered a scientific prodigy. Kessler posseses a mastery of electrical, mechanical, and genetic engineering, electronics, chemistry, all levels of physics, he is a master thoretician and an expert machine smith. His company, First Sons Inc. has made scientific breakthroughs in such varied field as biochemistry, robotics, computers, synthetic ploymers, communications, mutations, transportations, energy generation, spectral analysis and more.

Expert Businessman and Crime Lord- Kessler is apparently well-respected in the business world. He is able to gain people's attention when he speaks on economic matters. He has, over the years, built and his merged his own company with several other multimillion dollar companies from the ground up. He known for his impeccable business ethics. He is secretly the driving force behind much of Empire City's criminal activity. The general public is unaware of Kessler McGrath's criminal activities.

Expert Tactician- Kessler is a brilliant tactician capable of quickly formulating strategies and new plans should his current situation change.
